There’s no better time to cook with young children than for holidays. Whether you’re recreating a traditional family meal or starting your own new tradition, it’s the perfect opportunity to invite kids into the kitchen. And with friends and family at the table, kids are sure to deepen their connections and receive lots of encouragement.
Getting young children to eat can be a challenge and holidays are no exception, but when you involve them in the process—whether it’s choosing the menu, making a grocery list, shopping, or cooking—they become engaged. And an engaged child is a better, more curious, healthier eater.
